Record 3rd qtr

Well it looks like our "pizza parties" in MIA won't be at risk.  I was a little worried our productivity would decline as a result.

Terrific job by all the hard working front line folks. But in the eyes of one dude it just won't be good enough bec its not one airline
 
Well piss on him. He does not work for this airline. He should stay on the Delta board and talk about something he knows about.
 
Great job to all of the AA folks out there. Lets keep it rolling into the 4th Qtr. and have a great year.

Looking good at this point, and I expect that it will only get better once the company optimizes the combined route systems. A few more steps to go on the operational side as well with crews and AC.

We'll, don't forget, as DP says, “It’s just not the right way to pay 100,000 employees that don’t have that much impact on the daily profits.”

Would be a great time to be in negotiations....
yes it would.....search for the twu-iam association page on facebook and comment on how you feel.
they really really like your input there........
 
And still no JCBA. The association is so inept that can't get to the table. We don't get to enjoy the prosperity of the new AA.
 
And the stock had a buildup the last few days, was up to almost $48 in Pre market trading today. And now is down to $44 and change?

The market must hate Parker or something. This happens every time he opens his mouth on earnings calls.  
 
or more likely that the results were pretty much in line with what was expected and the stock had already had its runup prior to the announcement. Since AA was the last of the big 4 to announce, AA had its runup tied to the rest of the industry and now Wall Street is resetting fares based on actual performance which was in line with analyst expectations.

Fuel is the big driver in cost reduction which drove profit increases but other cost increases were good. Revenue growth was as expected - with RASM the weakest of the big 4 carriers.

Latin and Pacific RASM were both down double digits - similar to UA but UA's domestic RASM was down 7.6%, the largest domestic reduction of any of the big 4.
